Synology Announces DS710+ NAS Server

Synology UK, leaders in open source network attached storage solutions announced today the DiskStation DS710+ aimed primarily at SMB and home enthusiast users. Shipping with Synology’s award winning DiskStation Manager 2.2 web-interface, the DS710+ can be set up and configured within minutes without the requirement of extensive technical knowledge.

“As far as a small or medium business is concerned, the DS710+ ticks all the right boxes,” exclaimed Victor Chiang, Sales and Marketing Director, Synology UK. “Smaller than the size of a shoe box, the DiskStation is powerful, secure and reliable enough to cope with the majority of a company’s backup, IT and internet requirements at a low initial cost outlay and on-going running costs."

The DS710+ is one of the few Synology DiskStations based on an Intel processor, consuming just 31 watts of power1 while providing excellent performance. It can be expanded up to 14TB with the optional DX510 external drive unit (launching March 2010) and supports JBOD, RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6 delivering over 110MB/s read and 100MB/s write speeds within a Windows environment.

“Today’s small business environments require network attached storage solutions that support multiple clients and protect data while reducing operational costs”, said Seth Bobroff, General Manager, Intel Data Center Group, Storage. “The Intel Atom processor D410 with integrated storage features within Synology’s solution delivers an energy-efficient and cost-effective platform that helps manage networked data.”

“Yet again, Synology has done a superb job reducing power consumption to a minimum without compromising functionality and performance”, Chiang reiterated. “With the use of Synology’s scheduled power down function, hard drive hibernation and wake-on-LAN support, it’s possible the DS710+ will consume less power than an energy-saving light bulb”.

With the release of DiskStation Manager 2.3 in March 2010, the free upgrade will enable Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) allowing the use of different capacity drives and a more simplified RAID configuration and setup. The upgrade will also enhance backup, encryption, remote web-file access and add Amazon S3 remote backup support.
